About Me

Hey you, yes You! You are reading this. Well done, keep up the good work and continue reading if you are thinking about contacting me ;)

Great! C$ management has done it again! They've screwed up the website for the Nth time in this last few years!!
Fuck! again & again!!!
Thanks for helping vandalizing and boycott the profiles yourselves.
& WTF happened to the travelling status??
& response rate going to 25% less??
& they keep on removing references to other platforms but here it goes again:
Please contact me through b3Welc0m3 >> http://kcy.me/1ekb2 if you do through C$ you may get funny responses.

They removed the field now, so we won't fill it up with truth, so here it goes manually >>
YOUR OPINION ON THE COUCHSURFING PROJECT
Souldouts!!! Traitors!!! The spirit remains but you can go to hell to see if they accept money in there.

First of all you should be reading my full profile, or a good deal of it at least. Well done if you are because you need to include the words "I like semiconductors" on the request in order to get noticed as a human being that cares about the host.
Second, as said up there, if you don't have any major reason to avoid doing so, like speed or technical issue (not laziness), send the request through b3W3lc0m3.
I get more than a couple requests a day, so this helps with the "selection" process.

Following the original spirit of CSing, hosts don't expect anything from guests, but it's always nice to offer something in return for the hospitality, the insider info and the good will like some more good will, hugs, cook a meal or whatever from wherever you are coming from ;P

My home is not a free hotel, I'm not a lonely bitch and I don't need surfers to get laid. I'm a human being with a heart and dreams.

I'm reinstating the old-skool C$ style of saying thanks to your host, I think the new managers don't like people being nice and removed whole sections about hospitality: the least you can do is cook a nice meal to your host. Oh! and if you are coming from Spain bring a bottle of wine ;P

Enjoy!

ABOUT ME
=NOT FOR SALE=
=UPDATE=
I'm not sure if you noticed or not, but on 10th October (2k12) Couchsurfing Inc. changed their ToU & Privacy Policy without making anyone aware the change was coming.

Just pointing out that what used to be 5.3 - Member content license is now numbered 4.3
ToU:
http://www.couchsurfing.org/terms.html

Privacy Policy:
http://www.couchsurfing.org/privacy.html

There has not much changed only little things as you will see.
Still it would be better if they informed members before making changes besides imposing them on us!
----------------------------

Dear Couch$urfers,

These are sad times for me. In the light of the new terms of use and the privacy policy which should go into effect on September 21, 2012, as well as the overall development with CS being a corporation with profit-orientated leadership, I feel that I will have to boycott my profile and turn my back on this platform.

The new terms are not in accordance with European law nor the US-EU Safe harbour principles. One of the most controversial lines is the following: (WOW you removed this too from my profile, bastards!!!!)

PHILOSOPHY
=NOT FOR SALE=
Miriam, one of my little sisters told me when I turned 18:
"Fill your days with life, not your life with days"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

=NOT FOR SALE=

I love the CSing spirit. I joined at the very beginning, in 2007, when everyone was helping develop the community and ambassadors, creating and improving the website, and making assemblies and meetings all around the world defining what CSing should be. That was up until a few years ago, when Casey Fenton and friends started sucking all the money, destroying the website, removing features and making all the organization theirs. It culminated when they turned the platform for a global village into a for-profit Corporation overnight and betrayed everyone of us. That's why I tend to use other websites, but the original spirit remains.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
=NOT FOR SALE=
It was amazing, till it turned into a Corporation.

Interests

=NOT FOR SALE=
Biking, swimming, cats, playing games and videogames, DJing, multimedia creation, scuba diving, languages, Japan, asian cultures...

Music, Movies & Books

=NOT FOR SALE=
Small budget Spanish cinema, Aronofsky, Lynch, short movies... and mainly Sci-Fi and humour. This leads to the next choices:
Writers such as William Gibson, Terry Pratchett and the dark Vampire Chronicles...
I listen to lots of music, but what I like most is Metal, Punk, Goth, Psychedelic, 8 bits and real Trance...
and cyberpunk in all its shapes

One Amazing Thing I've Done

=NOT FOR SALE=
I got married....for a while
& theremins
& true love
& amazing sunsets in a thai beach
& good friends along the way
& takethesquares
& occupythestreets...

Teach, Learn, Share

=NOT FOR SALE=
I can teach you how to use Drupal CMS to make your own websites & how to play Go/Weiqi (chinese board game).
I'd love to speak proper Japanese and learn Chinese, I can never take enough of those characters.

What I Can Share With Hosts

=NOT FOR SALE=
I can show them the alternatives to this money-thirsty platform that Corp$urfing has ended up being.

Countries I've Visited

Japan, Morocco, Nepal, Thailand

Countries I've Lived In

Ireland, Spain, United Kingdom
